Air Conditioning - Coming Soon

Lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint with a Heat Pump or Air Conditioning. From August 2020 we will be adding renewable heating and cooling to our list of services we offer to our customers. 


Heat pumps are a renewable energy technology that converts energy in the ground or air into heat. This process delivers green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round. Air-source heat pumps are highly energy efficient, meaning they’re a great way to cut your energy bills. Not only that, because they generate 3 times as much energy as they use, they’re far more efficient than a traditional boiler, using far less energy. 

Air-source heat pumps extract 75% of their energy from the natural air around your home. And because they’re powered by electricity, they produce a fraction of the CO2 and NOx emissions created by an oil, LPG or gas boiler. Which adds up to a huge reduction in the environmental impact of your home.

           How a heat pump works

A heat pump controls the temperature by transferring heat. There are three essential components to a heat pump: the outdoor unit (evaporator), the indoor unit(s) (condenser) and the refrigerant. The refrigerant transfers the heat as it circulates between the outdoor and indoor unit(s).

  • The evaporator extracts energy from the renewable source (air, water, geothermal or solar) by forcing the liquid to transform into a gas.
  • The compressor compresses the gas, which raises its temperature.
  • The condenser exchanges the heat from the gas to the heating system, and the gas returns to a liquid state.
  • The expansion valve lowers the pressure of the refrigerant, which triggers evaporation and the cycle begins all over again.

     We simply reverse this cycle to cool your home.
